In this recipe, I use grated cheddar cheese. This is the most suitable cheese to make a delicious grilled potato dish. This cheese has a hard texture, pale yellow color.

Tips to distinguish bacon from beef bacon
Bacon is made from processed pork in the form of a piece, while beef bacon is processed beef that has the same shape as bacon. Here’s how to tell the difference:
Pork has a paler red color when compared to deep, deep red beef. The color of pork more closely resembles chicken meat.
Beef has solid-looking fibers with clearly visible fiber lines. The fibers in the beef also look rougher and tighter.
This is different from pigs that have finer fibers and stretch each other.
The difference in fat is present in its elasticity level. Pork has a thick but soft fat texture that makes it more elastic. While the fat of the cow is stiffer, thicker, and denser.
Also, the fat of the pork will feel very wet and difficult to remove from the meat. While on beef, the fat is slightly drier and fibrous.
Beef has a stiffer, denser texture than flabby, stretchy pork.
By holding it, you should already be able to feel the difference. The texture of the beef will taste very chewy, while the pork will taste softer.
The aroma becomes one of the most potent weapons for distinguishing beef and pork. Pork comes with a characteristic fishy aroma, in contrast to the more rancid and concentrated cows.
